The "blue" of the prints is from a cyanotype process-an early 19th c. photographic chemical process using iron. There's a relationship/tension between the 19th century technology (of Baudelaire's time) to depict 21st century technologies, like the nanoscale DNA structures in the first print, made by IBM scientists for IBM supercomputers (called "Blue Gene").

There was a limited edition of fifty copies published. The library has copy number ten. The prints are by George Laws Weinberg.
